A UK Sea Kayaking trip to the Isle of May and Bass Rock.
The Isle of May and Bass Rock provide one of the best sea kayak trips the UK. With long open crossings and tidal streams settled conditions may be necessary. With boats packed for an overnight trip we set off from North Berwick.The Isle of May lies about 12Nm across the Firth of Forth, and we approached it at dusk.The cliffs on the west of the island are spectacular.and the approach to the harbour is tucked away on the east side.We had a short time to explore before settling down for the night.
The next morning, we had mirror sea conditions and set off for Bass Rock.The bird life is spectacular. Bass Rock is one of the best UK sea kayaking destinations to see Gannets.Not forgetting the caves and tunnel right through the island!
